East West Mamas: Karen Kane Dress + $100 GC giveaway! {Closed}

Monday, October 21, 2013

I can't believe it's been nearly a year since my fave blogging buddy and I started East West Mamas. What began as a few friendly email exchanges, has turned into a legit friendship that not only inspires me fashion wise, but in the day-to-day grind of being a mama and trying to take on the world. 
We've made some great partnerships (each rocking Sole Society kicks here!) and discovered some fabulous brands along the way... that we hope inspire you guys a little bit too!

Up this month: a killer LBD from Karen Kane.
Truth be told, I scanned the site and fell in love with so much, but didn't notice this dress right away. Then my lovely partner over at Thirty Something Fashion pointed out that it would be a perfect dress come holiday party time, with just the appropriate length for that family gathering and just enough edge on the shoulders to keep it on trend.
She was so right. I'm already envisioning a zillion ways to wear it this upcoming season and when the weather cools down even more, so many options. This dress, like a blank slate, to pile on jewelry, wear with boots or heels... throw a scarf or faux fur vest on top...
You can wear this baby in such an "easy" way, a look that feels pulled-together without putting much thought or effort into it...
And we all need an item in our closet like that, don't you think?!
 Cheers to the upcoming season, ladies! I hope you're as excited as I am!
 Dress - c/o Karen Kane, Vest - Romeo & Juliet Couture, White beaded necklace - Ace Commune, Gold Necklace - Lauren Conrad for Kohls
